what's your favorite potato recipe? Do you prefer taters on their own (i.e. french fries) or moreso in a recipe (i.e. soup)
Your secret closeted way of enjoying potatoes? funny potato stories?

I'll share mine quickly... I had a garden this year... that I never planned on. I threw some rotten potatoes and the smelll ewwwww.. out the back door they went with the intent to go out and get them & take them down to the compost pile. I have severe CRS and forgot. My cats ended up using the area as a makeshift litterbox and ultimately half-buried the taters. I jokingly threw somemore soil on top and lo & behold in a year when the weather is the utmost terrible for growing anything, I had 5 lil potato plants that put out 5-12 lil new potatoes with no care.

They're affectionately referred to as the catpoop taters!
